Tips on How to Survive a Sniper Attack – Advise from Selco who Lived through SHTF

This post is by Bernie Carr, apartmentprepper.com After the Las Vegas shooting tragedy, a lot of people have been wondering what would they do if they were in a situation like that.   What happened was a horrific situation, one that we cannot even imagine.  I thought I’d ask our previous guest Selco, founder of SHTFSchool, who has lived through a SHTF situation himself.  Selco lived through the Bosnia collapse in 1992, suffering for a year in a city with no […]

8 Ways to Keep Yourself Safe on Campus

In a previous article, we talked about ways to help our college students prepare for emergencies while living on campus.  But there is one other source of threat they need to be prepared for.  Students entering college for the first time may not be aware of the risk of being a victim of campus crime until it happens.   Even a naturally cautious student may drop his or her guard because they feel secure in the school environment.  Unfortunately, crime still happens.  […]

Get Rid of Paper Clutter

This post is by Bernie Carr, apartmentprepper.com Lack of space is hindering my ability to add to my emergency supplies so I restarted my de-cluttering efforts.  I have two large boxes of files and miscellaneous items that have been sitting around for two years taking up space.  Why haven’t I gone through them before?  Procrastination, that’s why!  I dread going through these boxes because I don’t want to deal with what’s inside. I finally made myself open them and deal with […]

How to Break in your Emergency Shoes

This post is by Bernie Carr, apartmentprepper.com In my post “What if You Have to Walk Out of the City”  I mentioned you should break in your walking shoes well before any emergency happens.  This may sound unimportant and boring, but believe it or not, your survival could depend on your ability to walk for a long period of time, and shoes that do not fit could delay or prevent you from getting to safety.

Monday Mondays: Extreme Couponing to Prepare for Emergencies

This post is by Bernie Carr, apartmentprepper.com I caught a few episodes of Extreme Couponing on TLC and have to admit I am fascinated.   Although there has been some criticism of some of the featured measures that go the “extreme,”  this could be a way to save money or to start an emergency stockpile.   If done in moderation, and never to the point of obsession, I can see how using coupons, combining deals and taking advantage of store sales could really […]

Can You Live without Electricity?

This post is by Bernie Carr, apartmentprepper.com After multiple hurricanes devastated areas in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico, many residents have had their electricity interrupted.  Some people are still suffering without power after several weeks, as recovery can be slow.

4 Essential Marine Gun Tips for an Average Apartment Dweller

Written by Will Guns are important in a survival situation and you shouldn’t let anyone convince you otherwise!  We need them for self-defense, hunting, and defending our base (which can just as easily be your apartment).  When SHTF, there won’t be another mean to keep safe as all sorts of trouble will head your way.  Worse, you’ll have to defend against other people who, in a need for survival, will set aside any shadow of civilization.  That’s why I think it’s important […]

Money Mondays: Take Advantage of Emergency Supply Sales
